Welcome to our Drawing Class. In this 3-day class you will learn the beginning points of how to draw. You will gain an understanding of drawing with both pencil and charcoal. Experimenting with the different types of lead and graphite, blending tools, paper surfaces and much more will open your drawing to choices you might not have known you have.

We will cover the fundamentals of drawing an animal with expression, fur and proportions. By learning  these "basics " of drawing, you will then be able to create an animal portrait. bring your own photo if you wish to make a portrait of your pet.                           

You will be given a SketchBook in your first class.

The class will consist of SketchBook assignments for students to take home, execute the assignments on their own, and bring them back for discussion and further growth-based feedback.

Instruction is individualized and student creations that they decide to share and go over for any adjustments that they need and want to make as well will allow instructor and art educator, Robin Shoup Wilson to teach in even more detail where improvement can take place.

We look forward to drawing with you.  

 Remember, we are playing it safe for everyone so we wear our masks and keep our social distances at all times.

Maximum 10 participant per class.

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy.  Please feel free to contact us at 419.756.1700 or debra@mansfieldartcenter.org

Silk painting refers to the practice of applying paints or dyes to silk textiles. 

Silk is a fine fiber made from the filaments of silkworm cocoons. When boiled and gently unwound, these pupal casings produce silk strands that can be combined into threads, which, in turn, can be used to make textiles.

Painting on silk is soothing and extraordinarily pleasing to watch. It is simply exquisite! 

An incredible choice of patterns await for you to choose, whether you prefer the bright colors of the jungle life or the beautiful outfits of the flowers in the heat of summer, certainly there is a choice you will love. You are also ecouraged to make your own original design.

With a  classic  “Serti” method which encapsulates the dye within a certain area of the design, so the color stays in place, participant will utilize all technique of painting with salt, watercolor and a dash of vodka! 

You will have the opportunity to either wear your art as a scarf or mount it on a 21 by 21 canvas. This will be shown and discussed at the beginning of the class so that you can make the best choice for yourself.

If you are interested in seeing a sample prior to the class, please stop by the MAC and see our upcoming class samples.
